Real Estate Sales Recommendation from an AA neighbor
Looking for help in selling an AA home? I highly recommend Lucy Andersen whom I found to be genuine and honest, while being a professional of the highest integrity. (And she’s not my relative.) She also has a good knowledge of the local real estate arena and as the song says “knows when to hold, and knows when to fold”. In my case, she knew how to hold when I was offered 2.5% above the asking price, and not say anything about other offers, which were below that asking price. She’s a great negotiator, and “handler” (of me). For details read the following “Back Story”.
I recently sold my duplex in Ann Arbor, and had the good fortune of “bumping into” Lucy Andersen in the process. Since I sold several other properties I owned (in various cities) by owner, I decided to try it again. Little did I know how much the process had changed over the years, and how high the stakes had risen.
Previously I simply went to an office supply store and bought a property sales contract to fill out myself. (I sold a house in Grosse Pointe with the help of a friend in real estate, who came up with a starting price. I also had the good fortune to have a real estate friend in Ann Arbor who gave me the same help. Between those two sales I sold two rentals in Detroit by myself.)
Because the Ann Arbor market had changed so radically during the time of my ownership, it presented much higher stakes. A (non-local) real estate attorney was recommended to guide me through the sales process. He was a waste of time. The only usable advice I received from him was to put a brochure box on a for-sale sign that I bought, to include details about the property. Within a few days I received four offers, so getting a buyer was not problem. But that’s when things got rocky.
I’m not quite sure what happened, but I think the attorney thought he could accept an offer for me, and when I said no (because it was lower than two others), the rejected party apparently got threatening with the attorney. That’s when the attorney told me I had to accept that offer (that I had not initialed). Lucy just happened to be at my kitchen table with another offer, when I got his call.
Because of my age, this sale was my last “hurrah”, and I became extremely anxious with his aggressive attitude. Lucy immediately took me under her wing, and I hired her on the spot to help with the process. Soon after I received another (very generous) offer, and Lucy did the rest, with ease. She’s totally worth the money! And, as a friend, she’s a “keeper”. (Andersen Real Estate 734-585-3466.)
I received your card with small token of appreciation…..
This was not at all necessary!
However, thank you very, very much!
You “earned” every bit of your fee on the sale of the Parkdale home.
I sincerely appreciate all your efforts.
